is criminal defense attorney. good morning and welcome to you, sema. she seems to be going over the same thing again. let's play another clip. >> for myself, he's guilty. because the evidence shows he's guilty. >> he's guilty of? >> killing trayvon martin. but we couldn't prove that intentionally he killed him. >> i know i went the right way because the law, the way it was followed is the way i went. but tpeultd have used my heart i probably would have went hung jury. >> so for some that's going to seem very contradictory. interpret what she's saying. do you agree there's a difference between what your heart wants and what the law tells you to do. >> i think there's no polygraph in that jury room so go with your heart. no one would have challenged her verdict. i don't understand why she chose, and i say chose, to interpret the law the way she has been doing. right now this interview that she's giving is just to essuage the public and the parents and justify this contradictory verdict, as you say. she makes very confounding statements, right? she says in the clip that you just played, she says

the constitution says they have to have a defense that we can't afford apparently? i met yesterday with maryland district court judges, about eight of them, and they raised this issue as one of critical importance and one of the judges, a reagan appointee, was obviously very animated at how we were undermining the very essence of the judicial system. surely no one on this floor intends to do that. at the defense department 650,000 vifflian workers are already -- civilian workers are already being furloughed two days a month. that's an effective cut and pay by 20%. the hardworking people whom we rely to maintain the national security of our country. on july 2 i visited with pax ian defense works from and talked with those who were forced to stay at home without pay. they were concerned about their family's finances but, mr. speaker, these hardworking and patriotic public servants were far more worried about support for our troops on the field on friday when many are forced to stay at home. they can't legally come to work and volunteer their time. the sequester is hurting morale and putting our na

think all of the jurors in this case were confused about the law. i think that the defense did a good job of telling them what they believe the law meant. the prosecution maybe could have given this juror, b-29 a little more ammunition to go back in that jury room and argue for her position and why her position was supported by the law. >> i don't think they did that. >> does it surprise you she was able to be convinced? that's a unique part of a jury. i was part of a jury for two days, but the prospect of all 12 of us coming to an agreement it was very stressful and people pushed. do do you think she was pushed? >> i think that happened. i think that's a possibility. when you're the sole juror back there holding this position that nobody else has and you don't really feel your equipped to argue your position effectively it is be isolating. they were sequestered. the world is watching. i'm sure she felt like i'm trapped. i don't know how to get the other side to agree to my position and i've got to do something and she may be been bullied or pressured down but that's not uncommon duri

, that the call by the defense minister for a public mandate to crash down on what he calls terrorism that they are obviously now starting to make good on their threats against muslim brotherhood. >> ben, this is just what we had feared. really the worse in this situation here. those two sides not able to keep them apart. in the meantime, you have morsi who is still in custody, i believe, with the military holding him there during a criminal investigation. what is his status? >> well, his status is really unclear. nobody seems to know where he is, how he is being held. the military insists or has insisted until now that it was for his own safety. now he is going to be officially held for 15 days while charges are investigated into the possibility that he conspired with hamas during the 2011 revolution to stage a prison break. he was being held at the time at a prison north of cairo. during that break, some of the prison guards were killed -- all of the prisoners escaped -- and, therefore, those are the charges that he is being investigated for. >> ben wedeman in cairo, appreciate the

justify shooting an unarmed person as self-defense. since your state became the first to adopt stand your ground in 2005, the number of what's termed as justifiable homicides tripled from 12 to 35 per year, between 2005 and 2010. that's an increase of 283%. are you hearing us yet, governor?! what are those people outside your office, what they're trying to get you to hear is that it's going to take a lot more than last year's quickly assembled task force to show them that you take their concerns around this law seriously. they want real action, that shows you understand this law is unacceptable and should not be used to justify the death of an unarmed teenager. the problem does not begin with the tragedy that happened to trayvon martin. the problem does not even begin with the actions of george zimmerman. governor, the problem begins and remains with the stand your ground law. sincerely, melissa.
